Earth Hour 2014

earth hour 2014

Today, Earthniversity joins the group of people, the citizens of the Earth, to reserve one (1) hour any moment today, March 28 until tomorrow March 29 as Earth Hour.  You can think of any activity that will conserve Earth’s resources.  If you are in the office, gather some friends to agree on turning off your air-conditioning units and a few lights an hour before you close the office.

In government institutions, 4:00 o’clock in the afternoon is the best time to turn off your aircon and lights. This is just to remind everybody that decreasing our fuel consumption can make a difference not only locally but globally.  This practice can also decrease our fossil fuel footprints.  If this Earth Hour will be done daily what a sustainable way it would be to conserve the resources of Mother Earth.

Parallel to this and in a long-term goal, perhaps our building designers, architects and engineers could advocate for the practice of Green Design.  Simply speaking, Green Design is putting the architectural principles in designing a home or office that will maximize the use of natural light, building materials and many others.

I would like to invite our friends to consider this seriously in planning your future home or office building.  Once, again, happy Earth Hour, and we hope that this Earth Hour will continue for the rest of your life.  What a sustainable way to conserve the resources of Mother Earth and reserving some of these resources for the future generations.

Have a happy Earth Hour citizens of the world.

  1. We always observe earth hour on the day – i hadn’t thought of ding it every day. but for a long time I have switched every light off when leaving a room, not run water in between cleaning teeth, rinsing dishes etc, and many small observances that all add up. the thing that helped a lot and also saves money is turning off things that one keeps on standby like the tv, DVD recorder etc.

  2. Henry – I really admire what you’re doing with your blog. It has inspired me join in the effort with my blog and my daily life. I look for ways to reduce waste, to increase awareness, and to pray doubly hard. Thanks for following me.

  3. What a great blog site! Thanks for visiting mine….think we probably have lots in common like preserving the fragile and interdependent links between ourselves and the biosphere we inhabit with all other living things….so good to know there are others out there. : )) Trees

    • Thank you for visiting Earthniversity. If you wish to contribute a write-up of your community, we shall highly appreciate it. You can try, just once and see what will happen. Have a great day, this is Henry.

  4. Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from
    someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
